Everyone knows about the famous images of Mary, from Michelangelo's Pieta to her appearances at Lourdes and Fatima. But the Holy Virgin has many lesser known images and titles, from her life as a young infant to her dormition. In this book, Ann Ball, a leading Catholic devotional writer, tells us the stories of these other faces of Mary--each one beautiful and unexpected, and all of them a tribute to the enduring power of the Mother of God around the world.
